Out there, under the shining vault of heaven, Men tell each other: ‘Man, be thyself!’ But in here, amongst us trolls, we say: ‘Troll, be thyself – and to hell with the rest of the world!’
Deep in the mountains, the irrepressible Peer Gynt dreams of becoming emperor of the world. From the frozen peaks of Norway to the sun-baked dunes of the Egyptian desert, one man spends a life understanding what it means to be at war with trolls.
Peer Gynt is a sprawling, cinematic saga of mountains and monsters, revealing an intimate story of love, sin, and blinding ambition. With its distinctive combination of puppetry, live music and ensemble movement, Gruffdog Theatre brings a fierce intensity to Henrik Ibsen’s poetic classic.

Praise for previous production – Rhinoceros
‘…there aren’t many plays that leave you speechless as the actors take their final bow; still less that fully deserve a standing ovation. Rhinoceros is undoubtedly one of them.’
